PeepSo 1.8.2 Is Out!

Published on June 21, 2017

PeepSo 1.8.2 has been released and we’re pleased to inform about its immediate availability! With it quite a few exciting new features and improvements!
WordPress Social Invitations
We’ve worked with the developers from Timersys who are the creators of WordPress Social Invitations plugin to integrate their plugin with PeepSo Core. WSI is a powerful plugin that will let you and Your Community members invite friends from other social networks. A few words from WSI’s description:
Currently supported providers are Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, Google, Yahoo, Hotmail and Foursquare. We built a robust queue system to handle invitations for you. That way we don’t exceed the different API limits set by different providers like Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, etc and we ensure all invitations are sent.
In the very first version of this integration you can show multiple invitation options right on top of PeepSo Members Page. We’re planning on adding an invite button in the upcoming 1.8.3 version on users profile covers as well. We’re open for your suggestions here…
